Jung Eui-chul joins Shut Up as a rival flower boy

Aha! So it WAS Jung Eui-chul in that second teaser for Shut Up: Flower Boy Band! Yaaaaaay. He’ll be playing the main rival to Sung Joon, and with Jung onboard, I think the love triangle just got a little more interesting.

I’m excited to see him in this role, since Jung Eui-chul is an actor I’ve had my eye on and really thought would have hit it big by now. He’s only had supporting roles here and there, but I think he’s definitely got screen presence, such as when he played the model-undercover in Boys Before Flowers, the one with a possessive interest in Jan-di. (His character was a punk but he was good in the role; that’s a drama where I often thought the supporting cast put in stronger performances than the main cast, e.g., Lee Min-jung, Kim So-eun, Lee Shi-young, and Jung.) Maybe the timing just hasn’t worked for him yet; he’s been out of sight for the past couple years (though I think he may have been off doing his military service).

Jung showed up a couple months ago in an episode of Vampire Prosecutor as well, playing the sacrificing boyfriend to the woman with split personalities. In Shut Up, he plays Seung-hoon, leader of the band Strawberry Fields. He’ll duke it out with Sung Joon in both the music realm and the romantic.

Eeeee, excited!

For a refresher, here’s Jung Eui-chul from his Boys Before Flowers days (the two images directly below), and his recent Vampire Prosecutor stint:

Interesting addition. He looks a little bit like Ji Chang wook on his face, specially on the VP pic. And yes, comparing is silly but i can't help it.

Bonjour Mystisith,

I think comparing is OK, some of those actors do look like one another (ex. Kwon Sang Woo and Kim Kang Woo, at least in my opinion).

Isn't it nice though that they are many of them (actors), so we have choices of who to drool over and wish well :-)

There's only 1, I think. The "ice prince"/guitarist/old best friend of the main guy. He is L from Infinite. The Tablo trained group.

After rewatching the SGB episode where Jung EuiChul was there, I had to go find (select happy) 49 days episodes just because of the FACE :D

He looks so hot in the first pic. I hope he'll get big roles soon. Unfornately, in this industry, it's all about luck and timing. Some people may be uber talented but never rise to fame while others..

For some reason, his features looks more chinese than korean to me.

I never really understood why he never made it big. When I first saw him in Buzz's epic mv, I thought - there it is, a new star being born.

Why he keeps getting only small supporting roles is beyond me. I hope this will be his big breakthrough.

Just when I thought I couldn't get anymore excited for Flower Boy Band they go and introduce Jung Eui-chul. Yippie! I remember watching Boys Over Flowers and wishing his character's story arc had been longer. He has definite screen presence. Thanks for sharing the news, Javabeans!

How odd - his BOF model shoot included a vampire setup and his first post-BOF was in Vampire Prosecutor.

He really is one hot looking kid with a really strong stage presence - just that quick shot of him in the trailer was a "hey! Wasn't that JEC?!" **rewind**

He's HAWT! Can't wait for this drama to start now. I'm actually more excited about this than Dream High 2, which is saying a lot. Jin-woon just never interests me, in 2 AM or in variety shows.

@steph : hi steph, yes that's correct..

i first noticed him in Do Re Mi with JGS..he's playing a rival too there, and for the same girl too (sigh, i was hoping he's gonna get the girl next time.. such a waste for an EYE CANDY-licious ^^; ) and then when i was re-watching Biscuit Teacher Star Candy, i jut realized that he was in it too as supporting character..
so glad at least he'll be in the series all along and hope he'll make it big this time..i always love his aura, so cool and feast to the eyes teheeee...

Definitely getting excited with the casting. Great addition.

Totally agree with you that he does have screen presence. What I've seen him in, he's really good but why he hasn't gotten bigger roles? Maybe his agency?Maybe he hasn't got the right role yet. Maybe this role, he will shine.

I think they were very good with casting in this drama.. I'm really excited!! There isn't one (ok, may be except for one) guy who I don't like/want to watch. I guess, they are counting in that since they don't really have a female lead fan base.

I am jut wondering about it's competition with Dream High...

had my eyes on him since 도래미파솔라시도 movie with jang geun-suk. and he keeps surprising me with the unexpected appearance in dramas (happened in BOF and VP). and this is yet again, another perfect casting for Shut Up. I'm so excited for thiiiiiis.

seriously now, i love this oh boy! PD. he seems to know exactly what he's doing when he's casting. as far as i've seen for ramyun shop, i've never been happier with the casting. jan 30, come already.

I've had my eye on him ever since I saw him on BBF, as well. I also saw him on VP, but it took a while for me to recognize him since he looks older and hasn't been active for about 2 years.
I thought he would get a lead role by now since he is good at acting and is good-looking.
Ah well, one day for sure 'cuz this guy has got talent.

Also, I have NO problems with his role in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, he suits it very well and, I'm sure, he definitely portray this angsty character very well. ^-^
